Princeton students protest network configuration that discloses their identities

A group of students at Princeton University has put together a petition, urging the administration to change how their network is configured. The addresses of computers on the DormNet network discloses the userid of the user, in this form: Every website they visit and every ad provider thus knows the identity of the visitor. See their petition: Princeton Dormnet Exposes Student Identities.
